Our Retail and Commercial team has recently delivered the new Darra Industrial Estate in Brisbane, comprising two premium industrial warehouses on a 29,000sqm site. The warehouses combined feature the largest rooftop solar photovoltaic installation on an industrial building in Queensland.
Warehouse 1 is a 7,200sqm facility for a metal fabrication company with 80 car spaces. The design includes an open production space as well as office and dispatch areas. Warehouse 2 is a 4,000sqm facility for a construction and civil hire company with 40 car spaces. The design also features an open production space with a 16-tonne crane beam, internal and external wash down facilities, a motor racing mechanic’s bay and offices.
Meanwhile, another of our recent projects, Ripley Town Centre, has received a 5 Star Green Star accreditation. The project involved the innovative use of 1,800 photovoltaic solar panels. The panels are part of a system that will help generate a sizable portion of the Town Centre’s power needs at peak times while doubling as car park shade structures.
